Family law in Connecticut: A solid parenting plan can do wonders

With a solid parenting plan, a divorcing couple is on the right path to parent their children in a positive manner even amidst the most stressful circumstances. Family law in Connecticut strives to give parents the means by which they can be good parents to their kids even as separate individuals. A parenting plan is a legally binding document that spells out certain particulars of the lives of children of divorce such as where and with whom they'll be living.

A parenting plan could also include such things as how much time the children will be spending with each parent, who gets the children on certain holidays and just how the co-parenting dynamic will play out. It can be tailored to suit each family's individual dynamic. A plan could even spell out how to introduce a new partner to the children.

A plan could also stipulate how decisions will be made regarding the children's welfare, how to address safety concerns, how vacations will be handled and if one parent can take the children out of state or even out of the country. These issues are best discussed or fashioned with the help of an attorney well-versed in family law. Such an attorney could provide assistance with a parenting plan ordered by the court or to help a client, through negotiations with the other parent, to create one that fits in with the family.

A Connecticut attorney will talk with his or her client to get a picture of the family's life and will be able to help draft a plan that meets the goals and needs of the family. A comprehensive parenting plan can be achieved easily when working in partnership with a lawyer experienced in family law. A compassionate attorney is there to field all questions regarding the legalities of any parenting plan options.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
